The Career Foundation delivers an employment placement program for youth under 30 years old called Completing the Circle (CTC).
The Completing the Circle program is an employment and skills development project funded by Canada’s Youth Employment and Skills Strategy (YESS). The program provides individualized support to youth with multiple barriers to employment.
How the Program Works
Through the program, youth participants are empowered to find employment. They are equipped with tools, supports, new skills, and the confidence to start and maintain work. Participants take their first steps towards meaningful careers now and into the future.
Our focus is on quality work opportunities for youth, employment maintenance, career advancement, professional development and training, and enhanced supports that are flexible and adaptable to the needs of youth.
The Completing the Circle Program Includes:
- Customized and adaptable work plan to meet your individual job search requirements and life circumstances
- Paid workshops
- Certifications at no cost to you
- Paid, full-time work placements leading to full-time, permanent employment
- Program Completion Bonus.
